Preview of What Effective Chairs Do Topic
We’ve all worked with good and “bad” Chairs and know the difference this makes to effective governance. Most “bad” Chairs are not malevolent, they often just don’t understand the myriad responsibilities of the role. They usually have to learn by trial and error.
What Effective Chairs Do is about how to select the right Chairs and ensure they understand all dimensions of the role. The role requires as much work, if not more, outside the boardroom as in it. Tips from clever Chairs are provided.
The topic also looks at:
- calibre and competence
- managing relationships
- chairing meetings
You will also get:
- a copy of the power points
- a checklist so your board can see how it measures up
It’s a perfect topic for:
- helping board’s to select the right chair
- inducting new chairs
